Recorded hate crime against disability, religion and gender/sexual orientation is skyrocketing

GOV.UK published statistics on hate crimes and racist incidents recorded by the police.

It makes grim reading if you are from a religious minority, disabled, or from a gender and sexual minority.

Recorded hate crime against all four is on the rise. The rise is fastest amongst lesbians, gays and bisexuals.

This goes against a lot of the rhetoric that we hear about Britain becoming a more safe and tolerant place.
